Toy Story 5 Release Date: Who Will Be Returning for the Fifth Film?

Even though the studio has been on a roll with unique features like Elemental, Turning Red, and Soul, Pixar isn’t scared to revisit its established series.

Toy Story, the first Pixar picture featuring Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, was released in 1995, and its spin-off starring Chris Evans, Lightyear, is expected to do well in 2022.

The following is a complete guide to Toy Story 5 Release Date.

Will there be a Toy Story 5?

Yes, indeed! Disney CEO Bob Iger announced in February 2023 that the studio was developing sequels to Toy Story and The Lion King, both of which had not been seen in nearly four years since the release of Toy Story 4.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Iger said, “Today I’m so thrilled to report that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular properties, Toy Story, Frozen, and Zootopia.”

When Will Toy Story 5 Be Released?

Toy Story 5 has not yet been given a release date, but based on the pattern of past installments, we can estimate when it might hit theatres.

Toy Story 4 was first announced in 2014, and it won’t be released until 2019. Assuming a similar production schedule for the fifth picture, we could see it in theatres in 2028. In that case, you may be waiting a while.

Yet, the film’s development might unquestionably advance at a quicker pace, and we’ll make sure to keep this page updated as soon as any new concrete information emerges.

What Will Toy Story 5 Be About?

The announcement of Toy Story 5 came as a surprise to many viewers, who were under the impression that the events of Toy Story 4 were the series’ swan song. To that end, producer Mark Nielsen stated, “We see Toy Tale 3 as the end of Woody’s time with Andy, and we truly see this as the completion of Woody’s arc and the story of Buzz and Woody.”

In that film, Woody and Bo Peep met again, and by the film’s end, Woody had decided to stay with Bo Peep instead of following the gang after they left with Bonnie.

Toy Story 5’s plot details are yet unknown. A tweet from Tim Allen after Disney’s announcement suggests, however, that the film would bring back Woody and Buzz after they said goodbye at the end of the last one.

Allen made the following statement “I feel sorry for you Woody, you poor odd little man. Five more to go, and we’re off! As far as the eye can see!”

As more information becomes available, we will add it here.

Toy Story 5 Cast: Who Will Be Returning for the Fifth Film?

There’s little doubt that Tom Hanks will return as Woody in Toy Story 5, and as said up top, it seems like Tim Allen has already stated on Twitter that he will be back as Buzz after Chris Evans played a different version of the character in the spin-off film Lightyear.

Woody, voiced by Tom Hanks, and other series regulars are slated to make a comeback in the upcoming fifth film in the main franchise. The spinoff did not feature Woody either. For more details visit our website
